The Chicago Rib Shack is a smokey-BBQ joint located within a few short strides of Clapham High Street and Clapham North stations. It's a venue that can trace its roots way back to 1982, when founder Bob Payton dropped anchor in Knightsbridge. Drop by Voltaire Road today and you'll find a bustling restaurant and cocktail bar specialising in Applewood smoked ribs, succulent burgers and chicken. Pulled pork is heavily involved too, and there's a range of Americana-inspired smaller plates and side dishes to consider.

You'll need something tasty to wash dinner down with, and Chicago Rib Shack is blessed with a varied and interesting drinks cabinet. The wine list is global; featuring bottles plucked from South Africa, Europe, the USA and Uruguay among a host of other nations. Cocktails are similarly exotic and are all yours for a reasonable £7.50, there's a considered choice of beers and plenty of alcoholic milkshakes to ponder if you fancy something different.

An indulgent eatery that suits both after-work drinks and relaxing with some friends at dinner time, it's clear that the Chicago Rib Shack brand continues to go from strength to strength.

A word from the chef:
The Chicago Rib Shack serve a damn tasty selection of meat; from BBQ baby back ribs, burgers made from prime cuts, cajun chicken and even a few hot dogs thrown in for good measure.

Loved my visit to the Rib Shack, great cocktails and food. Lovely friendly service - they have some great mid week offers so i'll definitely be going back of them.

Ooooh I ate at this place in Westfield once and it was really tasty. Way better than shakeshack and all those other places in London at the moment. I hope their cocktails are going to be as good!
